for 25 years. His genial manner and cheerful nature 
always won for him a place in the hearts of the teach- 
ers, children and general public. His was a sincere 
work for the schools, in which he always took pride, 
laboring most diligently for their success. He will 
long be remembered by the boys and girls because of 
his frequent habit of entertaining them with his thrill- 
ing war stories. 

He rests, having achieved the highest success that 
man can earn from his fellows — the confidence and re- 
spect of old and young. 



ENKIELD TOWN REPORTS 37 



REPORT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



The School Committee would respectfully submit 
the following report: 

At the Annual Town Meeting held March 18, 
1907, Grace Hale Stevens was re elected a member of 
the School Committee for three years The Committee 
met at the home of Mrs. Stevens and organized, elect- 
ing Wm. B. Kimball as Chairman, Grace Hale Stevens 
as Secretary and Treasurer. General charge of all 
school buildings and supplies of wood and coal was 
given to Henry M. Downing. 

In May the School Committee of both Belcher- 
town and Enfield held the annual meeting for the 
purpose of choosing a Superintendent of Schools. 
Geo. F. Ellinwood was re-elected. Mrs. L. A. Gatch- 
ell was chosen as Supervisor of Music. 

In September our much esteemed friend and fel- 
low member, Wm. B. Kimball, resigned his office 
because of ill health. 

Your Committee appreciate the support given 
them and trust you will become better acquainted with 
the work because of frequent visits to the schools. 



38 ENFIELD TOWN REPORTS 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Committee of Enfield: 

I have the honor of submitting to you my second 
annual report, it being the fourth in the series of re- 
ports by the Superintendents of Enfield. 

During the year there have been three changes in 
our teaching force: Miss May E. Rice, a graduate of 

the Fitchburg Normal, was engaged at No. 7 at the 
opening of the Spring term ; Miss Emma Parker began 
teaching at No 6 in September; Mrs. L. A. Getchell, 
Supervisor of Music, began her work also in Septem- 
ber. These teachers entered upon their work with 
earnestness and good results are being obtained. 

The recent introduction of new arithmetics and 
physiologies marks an epoch in our schools, for Enfield 
can now boast that all the textbooks used in her 
schools are modern and up-to-date. With such good 
equipment and with bright, intelligent boys and girls 
it is simply up to the teachers to turn out of our 
schools a product of which we may be proud It 
should be the policy of a community to have its schools 
run on business principles, to have them rarely closed 
except for prescribed vacations, and to convert the 
classrooms into workshops, where earnest work is al- 
ways being done and things are being accomplished. 
In the grammar grades it is essential that pupils do 
some studying at home. Parents should see to it that 
their children bring home their books and spend 30 to 
60 minutes upon their lessons daily. Thus parents 
have an opportunity of cooperating with the schools, 
and in this way a habit of home study is formed, with- 
out which children are greatly handicapped when they 
reach the high school. 



ENFIELD TOWN REPORTS 39 



MUSIC AND DkAWING 

Last year our music supervisor visited the Center 
schools and Smiths, but since Sept. 1 music has been 
introduced into all the schools. The supervisor is at 
the Center schools each Thursday morning and in the 
afternoon visits schools Nos. 5, 6 and 7. Good pro- 
gress is being made and it is expected that a public ex- 
hibition of thewoik of the pupils will be given during 
the spring. The drawing in our schools ought also to 
be under supervision. If our children are to have the 
same privileges as those in surrounding towns we can- 
not long defer action in this matter. It would cost the 
town not over $180. I believe some forms of manual 
training work such as paper cutting, braiding, sewing 
or cardboard construction could also be given by the 
same instructor. I therefore recommend that begin- 
ning with the next school year, we engage the services 
of a drawing supervisor. In the near future we shall 
find it most practical to fit up one of the basement 
rooms in the grammar school building with benches, 
where the boys in grades 6, 7, 8 and 9 can be taught 
how to use tools and can follow a thorough course in 
manual training. The expense of equipment would 
not be great. Our chief obstacle would be to find an 
instructor, but it might be possible to secure one by 
combining with other towns as we do at present in 
music. 

Inasmuch as the majority of the boys of Enfield 
take up a mechanical line of work in after life, it cer- 
tainly is most practical to shape their school educa- 
tion with this in view, and to give particular atten- 
tion to the training of the hand.

I also wish to recommend (and my recommenda- 
tion has the endorsement of the School Physician) that 
the law concerning vaccination be enforced in our 
schools, commencing Sept. 1, 1908. The law reads 
as follows : 

Chapter 44, Section 6, (As amended by Chap- 
ter 371, Acts of 1906, and Chapter 215, Acts of 
1907.) 

"A child who has not been vaccinated shall not 
be admitted to a public school, except upon presen- 
tation of a certificate granted for cause stated therein, 
signed by a regular practicing physician that he is 
not a fit subject for vaccination." 

IN CONCLUSION 

A table of statistics and the roll of honor is ap- 
pended to this report. 

In this age when parents do not, as a rule, visit 
the schools, as we wish they did, it is gratifying to 
learn through conversation that they have a keen inter- 
est, nevertheless, and that they appreciate the efforts of 
your humble servant to improve the schools and make 
them more efficient. 

Whatever success, however, has been attained dur- 
ing the past year is due to your hearty support and 
the co-operation of the teachers. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George F. Ellinwood, 

Superintendent of Schools.

REPORT OF SCHOOL PHYSICIAN 



To the School Committee: 

In submitting the first report of medical examina- 
tion of our public schools I take pleasure in expressing 
much satisfaction at the general good health and 
physical condition found among the pupils and it re- 
flects credit on their home life and surroudings. 

There has been no epidemic of disease and only a 
few cases of infectious or parasitic nature necessitating 
absence from school till cured. The most frequent de- 
fects found have been those located in the mouth, nose 
and throat: catarrh, enlarged tonsils and decayed teeth. 
If parents would instruct the children in the toilet of 
the nose and throat, not omitting the daily use of the 
tooth brush and extraction of decayed or loose teeth, 
much disease would be prevented. To quote from the 
Suggestions issued by the Massachusetts Board of 
Education : "Unclean mouths promote the growth of 
disease germs and cavities in the teeth are centers of 
infection. Pus from diseased teeth seriously interferes 
with digestion and poisons the system. It causes a 
lowering of vitality and renders mental effort difficult. " 

The schoolhouses are all in good condition and 
the general hygienic surroundings satisfactory.

PUBLIC LIBRARY REPORT 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association 
are pleased to report increased use of the library and 
appreciation ot its value, as shown by the patronage of 
the past year, an average of 150 books per week being 
drawn. 

The following magazines furnished by the Associa- 
tion are found on the table: Harper's Monthly, Har- 
per's Bazar, Century, Scribner, McClure, St. Nicholas, 
Cosmopolitan, The World's Work, Book News, Suc- 
cess, Country Life, The Review of Reviews, Good 
Housekeeping. The Scientific American and Dumb 
Animals are contributed by thoughtful individuals. 
These furnish fresh, varied and instructive reading 
suited to individual tastes, and are fully appreciated by 
the young people, especially who gather round the 
table on " library evening." 

After remaining on the table a month the maga- 
zines may be taken to the home for one week if 
desired. The generous appropriation made by the 
town, with the income of the dog fund, have enabled 
us to add more than 200 volumes to the Library the 
past year, while the income of the Hooker fund has 
furnished 20 valuable volumes of Science, History and 
Travel. From the mass of Modern Fiction the 
Directors have selected with care from standard 
writers, and also from writers of growing reputation, 
such books as are of healthy tone, and will not only 
interest, but stimulate and instruct the youthful mind. 



10 ENFIELD TOWN REPORTS 

Good books create an atmosphere for themselves. 
The habit of reading is formed, and a good taste for 
good reading developed by contact and association 
with them. The educational value of a good library 
cannot be overestimated not only for the young but 
those of maturer years, who will find on our shelves 
standard books on almost any subject they may wish 
to study, while the librarians are obliging and willing 
to render any service possible. 

If more of our townspeople would become mem- 
bers of the Association we are sure they would find it a 
mutual benefit to both themselves and the Library. 
Carlyle says, " The scholar finds food for thought and 
means of enjoyment; the person of leisure passes pleas- 
ant hours in company of an interesting book." 

Hoping for the continuance of your favor and ap- 
propriation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Loraine Andrews Smith, 

President of the Association.

REPORT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



A joint meeting of the Selectmen and two mem- 
bers of the School Board met in the Selectmen's room, 
Saturday evening, March 23, 1908, to fill the vacancy 
in the School Board caused by the resignation of Mr. 
Henry M. Downing. At this meeting P. R. Stratton 
was chosen the third member of the School Board. 
The Committee met in school room No. 2 for organiza- 
tion, and elected P. R. Stratton Chairman, and Mrs. 
Grace Hale Stevens Secretary and Treasurer. General 
charge of all school buildings was given to Mrs. H. H. 
Barlow. Mr. George F. Ellinwood resigned his posi- 
tion as Superintendent of Schools, and at the spring 
meeting Mr. Alvin R. Lewis was elected Superintend- 
ent. He has given the town faithful and efficient ser- 
vice. Mrs. L. A. Gatchell was elected Supervisor of 
Music and Drawing. The Committee feel that the 
schools are in excellent condition, and that the scholars 
have made good progress in all branches of study. 
The parents are urged to visit the schools and take an 
interest in the education of their children. 



ENFIELD TOWN REPORTS 39 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Committee of Enfield: 

I have the honor of submitting for your considera- 
tion my first annual report, which is the fifth annual re- 
port of the Superintendent of Schools. 

When entering upon my work at the beginning of 
the school year I found the schools in charge of an ef- 
ficient corps of teachers willing to work hard to im- 
prove the good condition of the schools. 

The per cent, of attendance for the year ending 
in June, 1908. is 95, but I call your attention to the 
large number of cases of tardiness and dismissal. 
Although there are ninety-seven fewer tardy marks 
than the year before, yet one hundred and eighty-three, 
with an enrollment of one hundred and seventy-four 
pupils, are too many. Punctuality is an essential ele- 
ment of success. If a pupil is allowed to be late to 
school he will form a habit that will greatly interfere 
with his success in life. 

I hope the teachers and parents will work together 
in training the boys and girls to be punctual. 

Besides the teachers' m'eetings my work has been 
with the teachers during my visits to the schools. 
Special attention has been given to reading and arith- 
metic. 

Reading or getting thought from the written or 
printed page is the most important subject taught. 
Unless one can readily get the thought expressed his 
progress in any subject will be slow. There is evi- 
dence of some improvement in reading. 

In arithmetic we are striving to give the pupils a 
thorough training in the fundamentals; accuracy, neat- 
ness, and quick work are considered necessary, and a 
clear explanation in good English of the steps taken in 



40 ENFIELD TOWN REPORTS 

the solution of problems is required. The pupils are 
taught to make out bills, write receipts, orders, notes, 
checks and all common business forms. The work is 
made as practical as possible. 

Spelling should be taught thoroughly. The 
pupils should not only be able to spell correctly, but 
should be able to use the words properly in sentences. 

In nine years of thirty-six weeks our pupils should 
be able to spell and to use correctly at least all the com- 
mon words in the language. 

It is often claimed that the pupils of twenty-five or 
thirty years ago could spell better than those of to-day, 
but examination papers of past years and other material 
still in existence, are evidences that spelling has im- 
proved and there is still opportunity for improvement. 

There are fourteen pupils who are attending the 
Athol high school. These pupils as a whole are doing 
fair, and a few excellent work. That they can be in 
school only about one-half the session each day neces- 
sarily interferes with their progress. There seems to be 
no way at present to improve this condition. It is 
therefore important that no pupil be allowed to enter 
the high school who is not well prepared to do the 
work. 

The music and drawing in our schools are under 
the direction of an efficient teacher. We are fortunate 
in being able to place these subjects in charge of one 
who is able to do good work in both. The citizens 
were given an opportunity to judge of the work in 
music and drawing at an exhibition in December. 
Drawing and raffia work were introduced at the begin- 
ning of the year therefore the work has been elemen- 
tary, but good progress has been made, and the work 
another year will be advanced. 

It is our purpose to exhibit the school work, in- 
cluding music and drawing, during the spring term. 
This will consist of the regular work of the pupils dur- 



ENFIELD TOWN REPORTS 41 

ing the school year. No special preparation will be 
made for it. I call your attention to the report of the 
teacher of music and drawing. 

The sight and hearing tests have been made as is 
required by law. No notices were sent to parents of 
those pupils who were slightly deficient in sight, nor 
of those who have received treatment. 

Number of pupils tested 155 

" deficient in eyesight 11 

" deficient in hearing 8 

" of parents notified 6 

In our school work we are endeavoring not only 
to develop the mind and train the hand of the pupils, 
but we are trying to lead them to acquire those virtues 
that make for character — honesty, neatness, purity, 
kindness and a reverence for all that is sacred. 

In closing I take this opportunity to thank you 
for your hearty support, the teachers for their co- 
operation and the citizens for their courtesy. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alvan R. Lewis. 
March 1, 1909. 



42 ENFIELD TOWN REPORTS 



REPORT OF THE MUSIC TEACHER 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

A backward glance over the year's work in music 
is most encouraging. Last year, being prac- 
tically the beginning, all pupils had to start 
on first grade work, the upper grades being able 
to cover in one year the work of four or five, as planned 
in the outline of the Weaver Method. This year a 
great effort is being made to bring each grade up to 
the Weaver Course of Study, and the end of the year 
will see this accomplished. 

Better tone quality, better expression, greater abil- 
ity to read at sight and sing confidently and 
accurately, have been the ideals for the year. 

Twice a week the pupils of all grades are required 
to sing an exercise at sight and alone, thus enabling 
both teacher and supervisor to become acquainted with 
the individual needs and give the help required. 

Many astonishing cases have come up in the two 
years, of monotones, (or those with deficient ear) 
developing into fairly accurate singers. 

There is still about ten per-cent of monotones 
among all the children of the town. This number 
should, and will decrease, until it becomes as small as 
one per-cent. 

That the grammar grades were reading three- 
part songs when music had been taught in the schools 
but one year and a half, augurs well for the future. 

Hearty thanks are due the teachers, whose persist- 
ent, faithful efforts have brought about such encourag- 
ing results, and to the school officials for their interest 
and helpfulness in the work. 

Respecfully, 

Lucy A. Gatchell. 



KNFIELD TOWN REPORTS 4:S 



REPORT OF THE DRAWING TEACHER 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

The outline of study for the year is as follows : 

Sept. — Oct. Study of fall growths. 

Nov. — Dec. Construction problems. 

Jan. — Feb. Bookbinding and applied design. 

Mar. — Apr. Object drawing. 

May — June Study of spring growths. 

Simple problems in the construction work have 
been necessary in order that a good foundation may be 
laid. 

A boy who has never studied arithmetic until he 
is twelve years old must begin at the same place as a 
first grade child. A boy who has never done any raf- 
fia work must necessarily learn first its easiest forms 
and uses. A girl who is able to make a beautiful bas- 
ket, perfect in form and pleasing in design, must some 
way and somewhere have learned the gradual steps in 
the process. 

The training given the mind, eye and hand through 
the study of drawing is of the greatest value, whatever 
the occupation chosen in life. The ability to plan, 
measure and construct, to originate models and designs, 
the forming of habits of neatness and accuracy, are 
some of the very practical results of the training in 
hand work. 

The instruction in book-binding will progress from 
easy problems to the rebinding of a book with a sub- 
stantial cover. 

The methods of stenciling, and wood block print- 
ing, will be taught and these arts will be found most 
useful in the decorating and beautifying of the home. 

When the year's work is completed, a foundation 
will have been laid, which, followed by further study, 



44 ENFIELD TOWN REPORTS 

may become a very lucrative profession or employ- 
ment. 

The skilled worker is always in demand. A 
skilled craftsman in the arts of basketry, designing, il- 
lustrating or bookbinding can always command a good 
salary. 

I desire to express here my appreciation of 
the splendid co-operation of the teachers and school 
officials. Respectfully, 

Lucy A. Gatchell.

Public Library Report 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association take pleasure 
in reporting that during the year an average of 175 books have 
been taken each week. It is gratifying to note the increased 
interest and patronage as last year the average was 150 books 
per week. Do the parents fully appreciated what it means to 
their children that the schools have access through the Library 
to much of the World's best literature? All residents of the town 
have the opportunity not only to see the leading magazines but 
the privilege of taking them to their homes for one week after 
they have been for a month on the library table. The following 
magazines are taken by the Association: Harper's Monthly, 
Harper's Bazar, Century, Scribner's, McClure's, St. Nicholas, 
Cosmopolitan, The World's Work, Book News, Success, Country 
Life, the Review of Reviews, Good Housekeeping, and The 
Technical World, which is one of the best technical publications. 
The Scientific American and Dumb Animals are contributed by 
friends. 

Through the generosity of the town in voting an appropriation 
and the income of the dog fund to the assocition, the directors 
have been able to purchase a large and varied selection from the 
best of the recent fiction, many books of travel and adventure, 
biographies of literary men and statesmen, also scientific works, 
among these being Harper's Electricity Book for boys, Harper's 
Machinery Book and Harper's Outdoor Book for boys. A valuable 
reference book recently purchased is the Handbook of the Trees 



31 

of the Northern States and Canada, illustrated by photographs 
of the trees, the fresh leaves, fruits, leafless branchlets and typical 
bark, by Romeyn B. Hough. Many standard works cannot be 
secured, owing to the limited space available for the use of the 
library. From the Hooker fund under the care of Miss Sarah F. 
Underwood, an expensive and valuable illustrated edition of 
Stoddard's Lectures has been purchased, especially for use in the 
schools. 

We will repeat what we have said in former reports: If 
more of our townspeople would become members of the Association 
we are sure they would find it a mutual benefit to both themselves 
and the library. 

"Dreams, books, are each a world: and books, we know, 
Are a substantial world, both pure, and good: 
Round them, with tendrils strong as flesh and blood, 
Our pastime and our happiness will grow." 

Hoping for the continuance of your favor and appropriation, 

Respectfully submitted, 

LORAINE ANDREWS SMITH, 

President of the Association.

Report of School Committee 



At the annual town meeting held March 15, 1909, P. R. 
Stratton was chosen a member of the school committee for three 
years. The committee met at the^home of Mrs. Barlow and 
organized, electing P. R. Stratton^ as chairman J Grace Hale 
Stevens was elected secretary and treasurer. General charge 
of all school buildings was given to Mrs. Barlow. At the spring 
meeting of the Belchertown and Enfield school committee, held 
at the home of Mrs. Barlow for the purpose of choosing a super- 
intendent of schools, Alvin R. Lewis was unanimously re-elected 
for another year and has done efficient service. 

Mrs. Lucy A. Gatchell was chosen supervisor of music and 
drawing. At a joint meeting of the selectmen and two members 
of the school board held in the selectmen's room, Saturday, 
evening, Oct. 30, 1909, to fill the vacancy in school board caused 
by P. R. Stratton's leaving town, George O. Crosby was chosen 
a third member of the school board. Your committee feel that 
good work has been done in all the schools, and would repeat 
the invitation to parents to visit the schools and encourgae the 
teachers and pupils by your presence. 



School Superintendent's Report 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD:— 

I have the honor of presenting for your consideration my 
second annual report, which is the sixth annual report of the 
Superintendent of Schools. 

The per cent of attendance for the year ending in June, 
1909, is 94, and there have been recorded one hundred and fifty- 
eight cases of tardiness. There was considerable sickness during 
the winter term, which caused the per cent of attendance to be 
a little lower than last year. The number of cases of tardiness 
is twenty-five less than last year, yet the number is too large. 
Irregular attendance not only hinders the progress of those 
pupils who are absent or tardy, but interferes with the work of 
the whole school. Pupils between the ages of seven and fourteen 
should be in school every day, unless prevented by sickness. 
For the benefit of the children, the law relating to school attend- 
ance should be strictly enforced. 

There have been only two changes in our corps of teachers 
during the year. At the close of the spring term, Miss Olive 
Stratton resigned her position in the Kimball school to accept 
a position in Whitinsville; and Miss Emma Parker resigned as 
teacher in the Potter school to accept a similar position in Ware. 
Mrs. Eleanor K. Richardson was elected teacher in the Kimball 
school and Mrs. Alice Parsons, a normal graduate and a teacher 
of successful experience, was elected to the Potter school. Our 
schools are in charge of an efficient corps of teachers, who are 



37 

greatly|mterested in their work, and are endeavoring to raise 
the high standing of our schools. 

Departmental teaching has been adopted in the grammar 
grades, this year, with good success. With fewer subjects to 
teach, the teachers are able to make a more thorough prepara- 
tion for their daily work, and the interest of the pupils has in- 
creased. Very few schools in small towns are so well arranged 
for departmental work as the schools in the grammar grades. 

There are nineteen pupils in the Athol high school. All 
these pupils are doing satisfactory work. The report of their 
teachers shows that the pupils appreciate what the town and 
the state are doing to provide them with a high school education 
without cost to their parents for tuition and transportation, 
and reflects credit on those teachers who prepared them for the 
high school. 

In June there was an exhibition in the town hall of the 
work done during the year, including music and drawing, when 
the citizens had an opportunity to observe something of the 
methods and result of our schools. It is our plan to have during 
the last of this year, a parents' day in each of the rooms, where 
the pupils may be seen at their work. 

Early in the spring, the Massachusetts Agricultural College 
furnished the boys with potatoes to plant and offered prizes 
for the best yields. Although few of the pupils competed for 
prizes, they demonstrated that they could raise good potatoes. 
The college has planned to continue this work on a larger scale 
and the pupils are greatly interested. 

It is evident that industrial training will soon be recognized 
as an important factor in education. Yet, a pupil who has 
been trained to express his thoughs clearly, in good English, 
to write properly social and business letters, to solve accurately 
and rapidly problems one meets in daily life, and to recognize 



38 

and respect the rights of others, has a very good foundation 
for his life work. 

Improvement in music and drawing, under the efficient 
supervision of Mrs. Gatchell, is apparent, to whose report I call 
your attention. 

In closing I wish to thank you for your support and co- 
operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS. 

March 1, 1910. 



Report of Music and Drawing 



TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS: 

ENFIELD, MASS. ; 

The progress of the schools in music through the past year 
has been very encouraging. In 8th and 9th grades we have 
four part chorus singing, the boys learning to read bass and tenor, 
and each grade is able to do more advanced work. Special 
mention should be made of good progress in the two districts. 

The same report maye be made of the drawing. To train the 
children to see form and color more accurately has been the aim 
for the year, and the results are gratifying. 

Great credit is due the teachers for their persevering efforts, 
and it is only their conscientious, daily drill that brings results. 

I am glad to have this opportunity to thank them and also 
the Committee and Superintendent for their enthusiastic co- 
operation with me in the work. 

LUCY A. GATCHELL, Supervisor of Music and Drawing

Public Library Report 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association report 
that nearly seven thousand books have been taken from the 
library during the year. They are glad to note an increased 
interest in the library, shown by the number of young people who 
apply regularly for books. Many of them also pass a pleasant 
evening around the reading-table, where they find the current 
magazines. The Association subscribes for Harpers Monthly, 
Harpers Bazar, Century, Scribners, Atlantic Monthly. The 
World's Work, The Review of Reviews, Good Housekeeping, 
McClure, St. Nicholas, Cosmopolitan, Book News, Country Life, 
Technical World, The Scientific American, Dumb Animals, and 
Literary Digest are contributed by friends. This helpful kindness 
is much appreciated by Directors and patrons. After remaining 
on the library table one month, these magazines may, if desired, 
be taken to the homes for one week. 

The generous appropriation made by the town, with the 
income of the dog fund, and the Hooker fund, have enabled us 
to purchase during the year many interesting and valuable 
books, and a further order has recently been sent to the publishers. 



30 

The Association has been fortunate this year in receiving gifts 
of books, the State sending eighteen volumes; Mrs. Weyman of 
Fitchburg, a native of Enfield, and friend of the library annually 
sends a few volumes. Mrs. Alice Ward Bailey, herself a writer 
of some interesting novels, presented many valuable and useful 
volumes "The Library of her Mother," who was a native of En- 
field. Also received from Mrs. Arthur J. N. Ward, Bulletin 
compiled by The Smithsonian Institute on " Our North American 
Birds.' ' To these friends we express our gratitude. 

"God be thanked for books. They are the voices of the 
distant and the dead, and make us heirs of the spiritual life of 
past ages. Books are the true levellers. They give to all who 
will faithfully use them, the society, the spiritual presence of 
the best and greatest of our race." 

Again we invite the townspeople to become members of 
the Library Association. 

We appreciate the repairs made on the room containing 
the library and solicit the continued interest and appropriation 
of the citizens. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 
President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 



The School Committee would respectfully submit the follow- 
ing report: 

At the annual town meeting held March 21, 1910, Grace 
Hale Stevens was re-elected a member of the school committee 
for three years and William R. Lisk a member for two years, to 
fill out the unexpired term of P. R. Stratton. The committee 
met at the home of Mrs. Barlow and organized, electing M. Rozilla 
Barlow as chairman, Grace Hale Stevens as secretary and treasurer 
and William Lisk as fuel committee. 

At a joint meeting of the Belchertown and Enfield school 
committee held in Belchertown in April, Alvin R. Lewis was 
unanimously re-elected superintendent of schools for another year. 
Mrs. L. A. Gatchell was chosen supervisor of music and drawing. 
Your committee appreciates the support given them and trust you 
will visit the schools oftener and become better acquainted with 
the work done. 



School Superintendent's Report 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD:— 

I have the honor of submitting for your consideration my 
third annual report which is the seventh annual report of the 
superintendent of schools. 

Although the work of the schools was interrupted during the 
winter term on account of measles, the per cent of attendance is a 
little higher than last year, 95 per cent. Apparently there have 
been a large number of cases of unnecessary tardiness by a few 
pupils who do not live far from school. There were during the 
year one hundred eighty-five tardy marks. In one school there 
were sixty-two, in another sixty-one. One pupil was tardy 
fourteen times and a few others nearly as many. The school 
officials and teachers are united in an effort to help the pupils to 
form the habit of punctuality, a habit that should be formed by 
every boy and girl who desires to succeed in life. 

At the close of the spring term, Miss Lawrence, who had been 
a very successful teacher of the grammar school for two years, 
resigned to accept a similar position in Whitman at a much 
larger salary than she was receiving here. At the same time Mrs. 
Parsons resigned as teacher of the Potter school. Just before 



36 

the schools opened in September, Mrs. Richardson, teacher of the 
Kimball school, was induced by the offer of a larger salary to 
accept a position elsewhere, and Miss Rachael Kennedy, teacher 
at Smith, asked for one year's leave of absence. 

Miss Ethel Reed from the Worcester Normal school, was 
elected teacher of the grammar school; Miss Corrinne Gifford from 
the Bridgewater Normal school, was placed in the Potter school, 
but at the close of the fall term was succeeded by Miss Alice M. 
Whitney, a teacher of successful experience; Miss Mary Lisk was 
placed in charge of the Kimball school a few weeks until a desirable 
teacher could be secured. Miss Fannie Thayer from the Westfleld 
Normal school was elected to the position. Miss Kennedy was 
induced to remain as principal of the school at Smith and Miss 
Mary Lisk was elected as her assistant. 

During the past few years teachers' salaries have increased 
and good teachers are in demand. To have good teachers we must 
pay sufficiently large salaries to retain them. Is it wise for En- 
field to furnish a training school for neighboring towns to draw 
from for teachers? 

Our schools are now taught by efficient teachers who are 
interested in their work and are striving to elevate our schools to 
a higher standard. 

The music and drawing have been under the supervision of 
Mrs. Lucy Gatchell, who has had charge of the work for about 
four years. This has given her time to work out her plans. The 
results have been good. The pupils understand the principles of 
music and can read and sing well. The work in drawing has 
improved. Although all the pupils are not artists, they under- 
stand the principles of drawing and are able to do creditable work. 
Drawing is made practical and considerable industrial work has 
been accomplished that will be of value to the pupils in life. 
Book-binding, designing, and fancy work have been taught; yet 
much more ought to be done for our boys and girls in industrial 



37 

training. Every girl should be taught to cook and sew, and every 
boy should be taught to use tools with at least some degree of 
skill. If they are not taught these practical accomplishments 
at home, they should be taught them in connection with their 
school work. This should and can be done without detracting 
from the regular school work. Reading, writing, arithmetic, 
spelling, ability to express thoughts clearly in good English, and 
character building are fundamentals. Industrial training is not 

a "fad" nor a "luxury," but is essential in giving the boys and 

girls a practical education. If two additional weeks could be 

given the grammar school course, and sewing be taught to the 

girls, and arrangements be made so that the boys could spend 

two weeks in some manufacturing establishment under skilled 

supervision, as a part of their school course; the cost would be 

small and the result would be of great value to our pupils. 

In my visits to the Athol high school, I have found all our 
pupils doing satisfactory work. 

Much has been done by Miss Whitney and her pupils in 
making the room at the Potter school attractive. A book-case, 
pictures, curtains, a table, etc., have been furnished. The result 
is pleasing. Environment is a strong influence in the formation 
of character. 

Very few parents have visited the schools during the year. 
Most of these visits have been made when special exercises have 
been arranged and not for observing the regular work. It would 
be gratifying to the school officials and teachers if the parents would 
frequently visit the schools. They could then speak intelligently 
of the schools, and the teachers and pupils would feel that the 
parents are interested in our schools. 



3$ 

In closing I wish to thank the committee for their hearty- 
support, the teachers for their co-operation and the citizens for 
their courtesy and good will. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS. 
March 1, 1911. 



Report of Music and Drawing 



TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS;— 

The work in music has been carried on along the same lines 
as in previous years. 

Teachers and children work with increased enthusiasm 
as each year shows greater advancement and the pleasure from 
the singing is felt more and more. 

The grammar school pupils are reading at sight somewhat 
difficult songs and learning the joy of four-part harmony. As these 
girls and boys go out from the school, year by year, the musical 
life of the town should be much enriched. 

Certainly the children themselves will never lose the love for 
music nor the inspiring influence on their lives gained from the 
four years of study. 

In drawing, the advance step has been an endeavor to connect 
more closely this study, with all other school studies. 

It is especially easy to combine language and drawing and 
the teachers are encouraged to do this in every possible way. 

With a splendid corps of regular teachers and enthusiastic 
pupils the result of the year's work gives cause for renewed 
courage and cheer in the future. 

I wish once more to express my heartiest gratitude to the 
teachers, superintendent and committee for their earnest efforts 
and loyal support. 

Respectfully, 

LUCY A. GATCHELL.

Public Library Report. 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association take pleasure 
in reporting that during the year eight thousand and thirty-two 
books were taken from the library. On each of six Saturdays 
more than two hundred were given out, in no week was the num- 
ber less than one hundred. 

The vote of the Town, appropriating one hundred dollars 
and the income of the dog fund to the association enabled the 
directors to expend three hundred dollars for new books, which 
have been carefully selected from the best writers of modern 
fiction, science, history and travel. Among them have been 
many books especially instructive and entertaining for young 
people. 

All residents of the town have the opportunity, not only 
to see the leading magazines, but the privilege of taking them to 
their homes for one week, after they have been a month on the 
library table. The following magazines are subscribed for by the 
association: Harper's Monthly, Harper's Bazar, Century, Atlantic 
Monthly, Scribner's, The World's Work, Review of Reviews, 
Good Housekeeping, McClure, St. Nicholas, Cosmopolitan, Book 
News, American Magazine, Technical World, Ladies' Home 
Journal, Scientific American, Countrv Life. Dumb Animals is 
also contributed. 



31 

A copy of Webster's Dictionary, published in 1829, and a 
Concordance of the Bible, formerly belonging to Rev. Joshua 
Crosby, the first pastor of the Enfield Congregational church, 
have been recently presented to the library. From the state we 
have received a valuable Magazine Index and several books. 
Other friends have also remembered the library by gifts of books. 

There are now about four thousand five hundred books in 
the library and a card catalogue lias been installed during the year. 

Everyone who sees the crowded condition of the library 
room and shelves, must be convinced that a building is positively 
essential to the usefulness, even to the existence of the library. 

We will repeat, if more of our townspeople would become 
members of the Association, we are sure they would find it a 
mutual benefit to themselves and the library. 

"The love of knowledge comes with reading and grows upon 
it. It is a man's duty to have books. A library is not a luxury, 
but one of the necessaries of life." — Henry Ward Beecher. 

Hoping for the continuance of your favor and appropriation, 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President of the Assciation.

Report of School Committee. 






At the annual town meeting held March 20, 1911, M. Rozilla 
Barlow was re-elected a member of the school committee for three 
years. The committee met March 22, in the office of the Swift 
River Co., for organization and elected M. Rozilla Barlow as 
chairman and Grace Hale Stevens as secretary and treasurer. 

General charge of supplies of wood and coal was given to 
William Lisk. At the Spring meeting of the Belchertown and 
Enfield school committee held at the home of Mrs. Barlow Thurs- 
day, April 13th, 1911, Alvin R. Lewis was unanimously re-elected 
superintendent of schools for another year. Mrs. L. A. Gatchell 
was chosen supervisor of music and drawing. 

Thanking you for the support given them, your committee 
extends a cordial invitation to parents and friends to visit the 
schools.

School Superintendent's Report. 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD:— 

I have the honor of presenting for your consideration my 
fourth annual report, which is the eighth in the series. 

The attendance for the year has not been as good as it should 
have been. The per cent of attendance is 94. Many children 
have been kept from school because of sickness; but there are a 
few parents who are still careless about the attendance of their 
children in school and allow them to stay out of school without 
satisfactory reasons. All children between the ages of seven and 
fourteen are required by law to be in school when physically and 
mentally able. There have been one hundred and twenty cases of 
tardiness during the year. This is by far too large a number. 
If the parents realized the injury the habit of being late will be 
to the child in life, I believe they would be more careful to have 
their children in school on time. 

Fortunately there have been only two changes in our corps 
of teachers. At the close of the spring term Miss Ethel Read 
resigned as principal of the grammar school, matrimony being 
more attractive than teaching school. Miss Lena Ripley, a 
teacher of experience and a graduate of the Westfield normal 
school, was elected to fill the vacancy. Miss Ripley's work proves 
that no mistake was made in the selection. At the close of the 



36 

fall term, Miss Mary Lisk resigned her position in the Potter 
school in order to pursue a business course. Mrs. Alice Parson 
a graduate of the Westfield normal school and a former teacher 
of the Potter school, was elected to fill the vacancy. During the 
last few weeks of the spring term Miss Kennedy was obliged to be 
absent from the school at Smith's on account of sickness and Miss 
Rose Foley substituted for the remainder of the term. 

In most of our schools we are able to pay a sufficient salary 
to retain teachers, and can afford to pay even higher wages than 
to lose a good teacher. Good service is worth as much in Enfield 
as in any other town. 

The Ward system of reading has been used in our schools for 
a number of years with good results. The Aldine system which 
has been used in many towns with marked success, was tried in the 
Smith's school. The improvement, especially in expression, has 
been so evident, that I recommend that the system be used in 
all the schools. Reading is the most important subject taught 
and every means possible should be used that will increase the 
pupil's ability to read well. 

Flags have been furnished for all the schools and the teachers 
have been instructed to display them from the staffs on every 
pleasant day and to drape them in the school rooms on other 
days, in accordance with the law. 

In closing, I wish to express my appreciation of the con- 
tinued support and co-operation of the committee and the good 
will of the citizens. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS. 
March 1, 1912.

Report of Music and Drawing. 



TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS:— 

As a result of hard, conscientious work on the part of both 
teachers and pupils, the fifth year of our work together in music, 
finds us nearing the goal and gaining the end for which we have 
been working, namely, being able to do the work in each grade 
outlined by the Weaver method. 

The Song Book used for the past year in the Grammar 
School is one prepared for High School work and the fact that 
our pupils can master the songs, shows what good results may be 
obtained under the Weaver method. 

This is the fourth year of work in drawing. 

The results are perhaps not so easily gauged as in music, 
but comparison with past years, shows greater ability to plan, 
construct and design in the problems as they are presented. 

Not to make artists, but to cultivate habits of accuracy and 
neatness, to create power to do and open eyes to see beauty, these 
are the aims of drawing. 

It is always a pleasure to have this opportunity to publicly 
thank the teachers for their earnest efforts and the Committee 
and Superintendent for their loyal support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

LUCY A. GATCHELL.

Public Library Report 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association take pleas- 
ure in reporting that the interest in the library has been main- 
tained; eight thousand, eight hundred books having been taken 
out during the year. 

The town making its usual generous appropriation with the 
income of the dog fund, we have been able to add to our already 
valuable library, many volumes selected from the best of recent 
fiction, travel and adventure, biography, and science. Special 
attention has been given to the choice of books interesting to 
young people and useful in the schools. 

It is gratifying to know that the reading table has been well 
patronized and that the residents of the town have the past year 
availed themselves more than ever before of the privilege of taking 
magazines to their homes for one week after they have been for 
a month on the library table. The Association subscribes for 
Harper's Monthly, Harper's Bazar, Century, Atlantic Monthly. 
Scribner's, The World's Work, Review of Reviews, Good House- 
keeping, McClure, Book News, St. Nicholas, Cosmopolitan. 



35 

American Magazine, Technical World, Ladies' Home Journal, 
Scientific American, Country Life, Popular, Mechanics; Our 
Dumb Animals is also contributed. 

It is our sincere desire that more of our townspeople should 
become members of the Association. We are sure the personal 
interest thus manifested would result in mutual benefit to them- 
selves and to the library, and might bring us the building which 
is so much needed. 

Books are keys to wisdom's treasure; 

Books are gates to lands of pleasure; 
Books are paths that upward lead; 

Books are friends. Come, let us read. 

Emilie Poulsson. — 
Hoping for the continuation of your favor and appropriation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President of the Association.

Report of School Committee. 



At the annual town meeting held March 18, 1912, Willard B. 
Segur, M. D., was elected a member of the school committee for 
three years. The committee met for organization March 19, in 
the home of Mrs. Barlow and elected M. Rozilla Barlow, chair- 
man, and Grace Hale Stevens, secretary and treasurer. 

General charge of supplies of wood and coal was given to 
Dr. Segur. 

The joint meeting of the Belchertown and Enfield school 
committees was held in Belchertown April 18, 1912, and Alvan 
R. Lewis was re-elected superintendent of schools for a term of 
three years in accord with a new law changing the time from one 
to three years. Mrs. L. A. Gatchell was chosen supervisor of 
music and drawing. 

Your committee appreciate the support given them and trust 
that you will become better acquainted with the work done by 
frequent visits to the schools.

School Superintendent's Report. 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE: 

I have the honor of submit ting for your consideration my 
fifth annual report, which is the ninth annual report of the super- 
intendent of schools. 

The attendance for the year has been fair, but the number of 
cases of tardiness in a few of our schools is disgraceful. This 
large number was caused by a comparative few pupils and nearly 
every case was absolutely unnecessary. Every child between the 
ages of seven and fourteen, should be in school every day unless 
he is unable to attend because of sickness. The law relating to 
school attendance and the penalty for non-attendance is very 
plain. The attention of the parents is respectfully called to the 
following extract from the School Laws of the State: 

REVISED LAWS, CHAPTER 44. 

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE. 

Attendance Compulsory Between Seven and Fourteen Years 
of Age, and Under Sixteen in Certain Cases. 
SECTION 1. (As amended by chapter 320, Acts of 1905, 
and chapter 383, Acts of 1906.) Every child between seven and 



40 

fourteen years of age, and every child under sixteen years of age 
who cannot read at sight and write legibly simple sentences in 
the English language, shall attend some public day school in the 
city or town in which he resides during the entire time the public 
day schools are in session, subject to such exceptions as to chil- 
dren, places of attendance and schools as are provided for in 
section three of chapter forty-two and sections three, five and six 
of this chapter. The superintendent of schools or, if there is no 
superintendent of schools, the school committee, or teachers 
acting under authority of said superintendent or committee, 
may excuse cases of necessary absence. The attendance of a 
child upon a public day school shall not be required if he has 
attended for a like period of time a private day school approved 
by the school committee of such city or town in accordance with 
the provisions of the following section, or if he has been otherwise 
instructed for a like period of time in the branches of learning 
required by law to be taught in the public schools, or if he has 
already acquired such branches of learning, or if his physical or 
mental condition is such as to render such attendance inexpedient 
or impracticable. Every person having under his control a child 
as described in this section shall cause him bo attend school as 
herein required; and if he fails for five day sessions or ten half- 
day sessions within any period of six months while under such 
control to cause such child, whose physical or mental condition is 
not such as to render his attendance at school harmful or impractic- 
able, so to attend school, he shall, upon complaint by a truant 
officer and conviction thereof, be punished by a fine of not more 
than twenty dollars: provided, however, that no physical or 
mental condition which is capable of correction, or which renders 
the child a fit subject for special instruction at public charge in 
institutions other than the public day schools, shall avail as a 
defence under the provisions of this section unless it shall be made 
to appear that the defendant has employed all reasonable measures 






41 

for the correction of the condition, or the suitable instruction of 
the child. Whoever induces or attempts to induce a child to 
absent himself unlawfully from school, or employs or harbors a 
child who, while school is in session, is absent unlawfully from 
school shall be punished by a fine of not more than fifty dollars. 

At the close of the spring term, Miss Lena Ripley resigned as 
principal of the grammar school to accept a position in the schools 
of Northampton, and Miss Fannie Garvin, who had been a success- 
ful teacher in our schools for ten years, resigned as teacher of the 
intermediate school. Miss Dorothy B. Durkee, a graduate of 
the Worcester Normal school, was elected teacher of the grammar 
school, and Miss Emily Bemis, a teacher of experience, was elected 
teacher of the intermediate school. 

Even' year the cities and larger towns draw from our corps 
of teachers. It may be convenient and beneficial to the cities and 
larger towns, but it does not benefit the schools in Enfield, for 
our children must necessarily lose by a frequent change in teachers. 

There were at the beginning of the year nineteen pupils from 
Enfield in the Athol high school, one in the Springfield high and 
three in the Belchertown high. 

It is not convenient for our pupils to attend a high school 
but they should be encouraged to do so. A young man or woman 
should have at least a high school education and should be pre- 
pared for some definite work. Parents as well as teachers should 
endeavor to ercate in the children a desire to become useful citi- 
zens, and an ambition to make the most of themselves. 

Our schools are doing practically nothing along the industrial 
side of education. If we are to give our children the training 
that manjr towns are giving theirs, the girls should be given in- 
struction in sewing and cooking, and the boys should be instructed 
in some kind of industrial work by competent teachers. This 
can be done without interfering with the regular work of the 
schools; in fact, it will stimulate the pupils to better work. 



42 

The Aldine system of reading has been introduced into all 
the primary grades with good results. Greater interest has been 
aroused and a more natural expression of thought has been evident. 

I exercises in phonics has been continued. 
Daily call your attention to the report of the teacher of music 
for her plan of work. 

In closing I wish to express my appreciation of the support 
of the committee, the co-operation of the teachers, and the loyal- 
ty of the citizens. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS. 



43 



Report of Music and Drawing. 



TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS: 

For the six years that music has been taught in the schools, 
it has seemed wise to alternate the years of giving public enter- 
tainments with the quiet drill of the school room. Each has its 
own value. Without the thorough drill on the sight reading the 
public work would be a sorry failure. But singing before an 
audience gives a strong incentive for thorough drill in clear ar- 
ticulation, good phrasing and artistic interpretation, sometimes 
lacking in the monotony of sight reading exercises. 

The program planned for the year includes the entertain- 
ment already given by the primary and intermediate children, 
the operetta, "Boy Blue," given by the grammar pupils, the 
May festival, in celebration of the coming of Spring, with songs 
and folk dances, and the graduation music. 

The drawing has been carried on as usual. Three new fea- 
tures are to be tried. Clay modelling for primary grades, basketry 
and cross stitching (taking the place of stenciling) for grammar 
rooms. 



44 

To the teachers are due the heartiest thanks for their co- 
operation in all these plans and to Superintendent and committee 
for their loyal support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

LUCY A. GATCHELL, 

Supervisor of Music and Drawing.

Public Library Report. 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association are glad 
to report continued interest in and desire for good reading, the 
records showing that 140 books per week have been taken from 
the library during the past year. 

The Association subscribes for the following magazines: 
Harper's Monthly, Harper's Bazar, Century, Scribner's, At- 
lantic Monthly, World's Work, Review of Reviews, Good 
Housekeeping, McClure's, St. Nicholas, Youth's Companion, 
American Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Technical World, Ladies 
Home Journal, Scientific American, Country Life, Popular 
Mechanics. These magazines, after they have been a month 
on the library table, may be taken to the homes for one week. 
The Directors note with pleasure the interest taken in the 
magazines and the increased use of the reading table. More 
than two hundred books have been purchased, selected with 
care from the best authors, many of them designed to interest 
young people and help in forming a taste for good literature. 

The late Mrs. E. T. Wright left a legacy of five hundred 
dollars to the Enfield Library Association, the income to be 
used for the purchase of books. This legacy the Directors 



31 

accepted with hearty thanks and voted that it should be known 
as the Elizabeth Trask Wright fund. Mrs. Wright appreciated 
the library and found much enjoyment in the reading which 
it afforded her. 

The Library Association desires to express its deep sense 
of grief and loss in the death of its Secretary and Treasurer, 
Charles D. Haskell, who for sixteen years faithfully and con- 
scientiously worked to promote the best interests of the library. 

The lighting of the library room by electricity is a great 
convenience to the Librarians and adds much to the comfort 
and enjoyment of those who spend an evening at the reading 
table. 

The Directors feel sure that the Citizens of the town appre- 
ciate the value of the library to the community and will continue 
to grant the usual appropriation and the income of the dog fund 
for it support. 

''A blessed companion is a book — a book that fitly chosen 
is a life-long friend." — Douglas Jerrold. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 



Your committee organized in September with Dr. W. B. 
Segur, chairman, and Mrs. Grace Hale Stevens, secretary and 
treasurer. 

A few changes were necessary at the opening of the school 
year in our corps of teachers. Miss Thayer was transferred to 
succeed Miss Bemis, resigned, and Miss Cannon appointed to 
fill the vacancy in the Kimball school. Owing to the resignation 
of Mrs. Gatchell, Miss Ballou was selected as instructor in 
music, drawing and handicraft and by special arrangement we 
have been able to secure her services four days a week. 

Compulsory vaccination has been impartially enforced as 
required by law. Some repairs have been made in the Potter 
school and the interior of the school house at Smiths as well 
as both rooms in the Town Hall have been renovated. 

The work and progress in all our schools has been generally 
satisfactory, even if not wholly perfect. The citizens of the near 
future are the boys and girls in our schools today, therefore 
your committee asks that parents and guardians co-operate with 
us and the teachers in securing the best results possible and this 
can be greatly advanced by personally visiting the schools, 
inspecting the work and giving us the benefit of your opinion.

School Superintendent's Report. 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD:— 

I herewith submit for your consideration my sixth annual 
report, which is the tenth annual report of the superintendent 
of schools. 

ATTENDANCE. 

The per cent of attendance for the school year ending 
June 30, 1913, was 95. The number of cases of tardiness has 
increased. The parents can do much toward correcting this 
bad habit which some of the children have formed. I trust 
that the parents will co-operate with the teachers in their endeav- 
or to train the children in habits of punctuality. 

TEACHERS. 

Miss Bemis resigned as teacher of the intermediate room 
at the close of the spring term to accept a position in the schools 
of Windsor, Conn., influenced by a larger salary. Miss Fannie 
Thayer was transferred from the Kimball school to the inter- 
mediate and Miss Bertha Cannon, a graduate of Smith college, 



38 

was placed in charge of the Kimball school. The law recently 
passed which requires the state to pay for the transportation of 
our high school pupils, certain conditions having been com- 
plied with, will I trust, enable the town to pay her teachers a 
sufficiently large salary to prevent annual vacancies which for 
the salary now paid it is very difficult to fill with teachers 
with training or successful experience. 

HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS. 

About twenty-five pupils have attended the Athol high 
school, three Cushing Acadenry and three the Belchertown high 
school. The pupils who attend the Athol high school lose two 
hours of the school session each day and the long ride on the 
train is not agreeable to many of the pupils. This arrangement 
has never been entirely satisfactory. The Athol high school 
has increased in membership so that it will be only a short time 
before our pupils will not be received. 

It seems possible that some arrangement may be made 
with the town of Belchertown whereby our pupils may attend 
school there, which will be a benefit to both towns. The amount 
the state will allow for transportation and the amount Belcher- 
town would receive as tuition from the town of Enfield, which 
the state will reimburse, would provide satisfactory transporta- 
tion for our pupils and furnish means wherewith the courses in 
the Belchertown high school could be extended. This plan 
is worthy of consideration and seems to be the only reasonable 
plan whereby our pupils will be able to receive a high school 
education. 

SCHOOLS. 

Special attention has been given during the year to reading, 



39 

language and spelling, and improvement is manifest. Sewing 
has been taught the girls, and the boys in the higher grades 
have been given instruction in mechanical drawing under the 
direction of Miss Ballou who has had charge of the music and 
drawing during the year. 

All the pupils in our schools have complied with the law 
relating to vaccination. Hereafter no child will be admitted 
to our shcools who does not furnish a certificate of vaccination 
or a certificate signed by a physician exempting him from vac- 
cination. 

The eye and ear test has been given as required by law. 

Number of pupils examined 183 

Number defective in sight 6 

Number defective in hearing 3 

Number of parents notified 9 

Miss Lucy A. Gatchell who has had charge of the music and 
drawing during six years, resigned at the close of the spring term. 
Mrs. Gatchell was remarkably successful in her line of work and 
the pupils rapidly improved under her instruction. Miss Jessica 
Ballou, a graduate of the Normal Art school and who had been 
a teacher of music in public schools was elected teacher of music 
and drawing. 

In closing I will call your attention to two important changes 
in the school laws relating to attendance, and to the law pro- 
viding for the payment by towns for the transportation of 
pupils to outside high schools. 

1 : The standard of requirements of an education, before 
employment can be given to children between fourteen and six- 
teen years of age, has been raised from the completion of the 
work required in the third grade to the completion of the work 
required in the fourth grade. 



40 

2: Children between fourteen and sixteen years of age 
must now be employed in some profitable employment for at 
least six hours a day or they must have the written permission 
of the superintendent of schools to engage in profitable employ- 
ment at home, otherwise they must attend school with the same 
regularity as children between seven and fourteen years of age. 

AN ACT PROVIDING FOR THE PAYMENT BY TOWNS 
FOR THE TRANSPORTATION OF PUPILS TO OUTSIDE 

HIGH SCHOOLS. 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows: 

SECTION 1. Section three of chapter forty-two of the 
Revised Laws, as amended by chapter four hundred and 
thirty-three of the acts of the year nineteen hundred and two, 
and by chapter five hundred and thirty-seven of the acts of the 
year nineteen hundred and eleven, is further amended by adding 
at the end thereof the following paragraph: — A town of less 
than five hundred families or householders, in which a public 
high school or public school of corresponding grade is not main- 
tained, shall, through its school committee, when necessary, 
provide for the transportation of any child who resides in said 
town, and who with the previous approval of the school com- 
mittee of the town attends the high school of any other town or 
city, and shall pay for the expense of such transportation a sum 
not exceeding one dollar and fifty cents per week during the time 
of actual attendance of such child in the high school. If any 
town fails to provide such transportation, it shall be liable in an 
action of contract, to the parent or guardian of a child who has 
been furnished with such transportation for such amounts, not 
exceeding one dollar and fifty cents per Week, as the parent or 
guardian has paid for the same. A town which has expended for 






41 



the support of its public schools for the preceding year from the 
proceeds of local taxation an amount not less than four and less 
than five dollars per thousand dollars of valuation shall receive 
from the treasury of the commonwealth one half of the amount 
actually expended for transportation under the provisions of 
this act; and a town which has expended from the proceeds of 
local taxation for the support of its public schools for the pre- 
ceding year an amount equal to at least five dollars per thous- 
and of valuation shall receive from the treasury of the common- 
wealth the whole transportation under the provisions of this 
act. 

SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon the first day of 
July in the year nineteen hundred and thirteen. Approved March 
28, 1913. 



Respectfully submitted, 



ALVAN R. LEWIS.

Report of Music and Drawing. 



TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS: 



The work in music which is being done this year follows 
the same system as in previous years. New material has been 
provided by adding more books of the New Education Series 
to those already in use. Thus a different book is used in each 
room of the center schools. The individual work is being con- 
tinued and in addition a portion of the book is studied each week. 

In drawing about the same course is being used as formerly. 
One forty-five minute lesson is taught each week in the center 
schools. 

New work has been started in sewing with manual train- 
ing for boys above the fourth grade. Sewing is taught to all 
girls from grades two to nine and boys from grades two to four. In 
the centre school the fifth grade boys asked permission to join 
the class and are doing as good work as the girls. The course 
comprises three models worked on canvas in which eight com- 
mon stitches are learned. The transition from canvas to cloth 
is not easy for some but all are anxious to do well. 

Articles of clothing of practical use will be made as soon as 
the pupils are able to sew well enough. Much of the work is 
done out of school hours. 



43 

An elementary course in manual training is used in grades 
four and five at the center, all pupils now taking both this and 
the sewing. The pupils learn to measure and to construct simple 
objects from cardboard. 

The course in manual training for boys from grades six to 
nine has been of a miscellaneous character. The use of the 
drawing kit was taught, a few geometric problems constructed 
and some of the type solids and fancy boxes made from paper. 
Later working drawings will be taken up, preparing for construc- 
tion work with heavier materials. 

There are classes in these new subjects in the district school 
so that all pupils are having the work. 

Much credit is due all the teachers for their work in music 
and their aid in the other subjects. Thanks are also due the com- 
mittee for so generously providing material. 

Respectfully, 

JESSICA E. BALLOU, 

Supervisor of Music and Manual Arts.

Public Library Report 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association report 
that the interest of former years has been maintained and the 
broadening influence of the library shown in an increased 
number of patrons and a larger number of books distributed, 
the average being 158 a week. 

Sixty interesting and instructive juvenile books have 
recently been presented to the library by the State Library 
Bureau. Two hundred dollars have been expended by the 
Association in the purchase of books carefully selected from 
the best recent publications. 

The magazines find ready appreciation by a large number 
of readers. The Association subscribes for Harper's Monthly, 
Harper's Bazar, Century, Scribner's, Atlantic Monthly, World's 
Work, Review of Reviews, Good Housekeeping, McClure's, 
St. Nicholas, Youth's Companion, American Magazine, 
Cosmopolitan, Technical World, Ladies' Home Journal, 
Scientific American, Country Life, Popular Mechanics. 



34 

The Library Association received one thousand dollars 
from the estate of Mrs. Lucretia Cary Chamberlain. This 
gift was received with gratitude and will be of great value 
to the library, the income being used for the purchase of books. 

The death during the year, of Miss Sara Frances Under- 
wood, has taken from the Library Association and the Board 
of Directors a valued member. Always interested in the library, 
her literary taste and wide knowledge of books enabled her to 
render valuable assistance in the selection of books. We 
shall miss her willing service and readiness to help. 

We are sure that this report will encourage the Citizens 
of the town to continue the usual appropriation for the library 
and to grant the income of the dog fund for its support. 

"If we encountered a man of rare intellect, we should 
ask him what books he read." — Ralph Waldo Emerson. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President Enfield Library Association.

School Superintendent's Report. 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD:— 

I herewith submit for your consideration my seventh annual 
report, which is the eleventh annual report of the superintendent 
of schools. 

ATTENDANCE. 

The percent, of attendance for the school year ending 
June 3, 1914, was 93. This is two per cent, lower than last 
year. The number Qf cases of tardiness was one hundred eighty- 
two less than last year. This number should be greatly 
decreased. There is not any excuse for so large a number of 
cases of tardiness. 

TEACHERS. 

Miss Dorothy Durkee resigned as principal of the grammar 
school at the close of the spring term to accept a position in the 
schools of Worcester. Miss Durkee had taught in our schools 
two years. She was a successful teacher and her resignation 
was accepted with regret. 



40 

Miss Mary Kennedy who had been a teacher in our primary 
schools for ten years, resigned at the close of the spring term, 
to be married. School officials, parents, and pupils were sorry 
to lose Miss Kennedy as a teacher in our schools and wish her 
success and happiness in her new position. 

At the close of the spring term Miss Bertha Cannon, who 
taught in the Kimball school resigned to accept a position in 
the schools of Hartford, Conn. 

Mr. H. Franklin Norton, a graduate of the Hyannis normal 
school, and a teacher of successful experience, was elected 
principal of the grammar school. Miss Fannie Frost, a graduate 
of the Randolph normal school and a teacher of six years 
experience, was elected teacher of the Center primary school. 

Miss Florence Johnson, a graduate of a teachers' college 
and an experienced teacher was elected to fill the vacancy in 
the Kimball school. 

SCHOOLS. 

At the beginning of the school year in September, Miss 
Florence Babb, who by training and experience was well qualified 
for the position, was elected teacher of music and Miss BaDou 
continued the work in drawing and manual training. Excellent 
progress is being made in music and advanced work has been 
accomplished in manual training. A room has been prepared 
and furnished in the basement of the grammar building where 
the girls are taught sewing and cooking and the boys are taught 
mechanical drawing and wood work. It is so short a time since 
this work has been introduced that it is impossible to speak 
intelligently of the results, but training along these lines is 
certainly an important part of a child's education, and, if 
properly taught, the result will be for good. 

Although the manual training has been added to the pupil's 



41 

work, the regular work of the school has not suffered; but better 
work is evident. 

The Aldine method in reading has been used more than a 
year and the result has been satisfactory. The pupils read 
with better expression, increased interest and greater intelli- 
gence. With the change in text books, the work in arithmetic 
has improved. Greater rapidity and accuracy in the essentials 
has been gained. Spelling is systematically taught and it is 
hoped that it will not be said of the pupils who graduate from 
our schools, "They cannot spell." 

As a result of the additional funds the town has received 
from the state, it has been possible to substantially raise the 
salary of all the teachers; place new seats in some of the rooms, 
enrich the course of study and furnish a larger amount of 
material for work. This has been done without extra expense 
to the town. 

I will call your attention to these facts: Unless the town 
expends from the local taxation a sum equal to at least five 
dollars per thousand of valuation for the support of schools, 
she will not be reimbursed by the state for the amount expended 
for the transportation of high school pupils.. No pupil will 
be received into our schools who has not been vaccinated or 
has not received a certificate exempting him from vaccination. 
All children between fourteen and sixteen years of age who are 
not regularly employed must regularly attend school. 

In closing I will call your attention to the reports of the 
teacher of music and the teacher of drawing and manual training. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS. 
December 31, 1914. .

Report of the Supervisor of Music. 



The work in public school music this year has been studied 
with regard to these three topics: 

1 Sight Reading. 

2 Written Work. 

3 Songs. 

The sight reading has been conducted by the use of the 
individual slips usually twice a week, the record sheet being 
kept once a week. It is very gratifying to watch the progress, 
how the average of correct pupils has increased and the time 
limit lessened. This individual slip singing develops indepen- 
dence, concentration, quick thinking, keen perception, habits 
of accuracy if properly conducted and self control. In addition 
to the slips, exercises have been studied from the books. 

In written work, I have tried to grade the schools in music, 
as they are in other subjects, and graded theoretical examin- 
ations, involving all the fundamental principles and essential 
rudiments of musical notation have been given frequently. 
Music writing books published by American Book company 
have been introduced. This book includes copying and writing 
scales and exercises and written dictation. 

The songs have been selected . from the New Educational 
Music Course and all available supplementary sources according 
to the ability of the school and with reference to the time of 
the year. These songs have been taught by rote, note and 



43 

syllables, the latter proving a very valuable drill. The majority 
of the songs were memorized. The songs help to develop, a 
musical voice, love of good music, musical interpretation, 
melodic thought and enunciation. 

A Christmas program was given in the Town Hall, one special 
feature was the singing of the old English carols. These public 
exhibitions help to inspire confidence and opportunities are 
given for solo, duet, trio and quartette besides ensemble work. 

A music manual was given each teacher in the fall with a 
definite outline of the work of each grade for the year. Special 
scale and skip drills have been given to aid those who are 
deficient in pitch. 

I wish to thank the teachers, the superintendent and the 
committee for their hearty co-operation, and all who have been 
interested in helping to make public school music a success. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FLORENCE M. BABB. 



44 



Report of the Supervisor of Drawing. 



TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS: 

The work in drawing, manual training and sewing has been 
continued and a little cooking is now being combined with 
sewing in the grammar grades. A room has been partitioned 
off in the basement of the grammar school building and many of 
the classes are held there. 

The lower grades are receiving instruction in various forms 
of handwork such as sewing and paper folding, so that each pupil 
above the first grade receives two lessons a week from the 
supervisor. 

During the spring term the older boys did some work in 
whittling and the girls made a number of gingham aprons. An 
exhibition of all the work was held in the town hall in June. 

An equipment is gradually being accumulated which will 
enable us to do more advanced work in the future than has been 
done in the past. Of course time is necessary to adjust ourselves 
to the new conditions and to find the best ways of working under 
unusual circumstances and with the least possible expenditure. 

Respectfully, 

JESSICA E. BALLOU.

MEMOS AND EXTRACTS. 



INHABITANTS OF ENFIELD Hampshire, SS. 

vs. SUPERIOR COURT 

CAROLINE D. WOODS, personally 
and as Executrix of the will of Cyrus 
F. Woods. In Equity. 

J. C. Hammond who was appointed Special Master in the 
above case has made his draft report which report being pre- 
liminary is subject to change. 

The Master finds that Robert Field was the owner of the 
locus in question prior to 1814 and that sometime before that 
year he made a parol gift of certain land to the South Parish of 
Greenwich, now the Town of Enfield. 

The land so given is bounded easterly on the Meeting 
House lot of the Congregational Church in said Enfield, southerly 
on the main travelled highway, westerly on the road to Amherst 
and northerly by land formerly marked by a very ancient fence. 

That this fence had stood on this line and in front of the 
homestead of C. F. W'oods, J. E. Woods and the Parsonage lot 
and in a straight line for a longer period than the memory of 
any witness produced at the hearing. 



61 

One witness 85 years of age testified that it was there as 
long ago as the year 1839, and that all the time it was known 
as the Northerly bound of the land which Robert Field had 
given to the Town for a common. 

The Master also finds that the persons who preceded 
Cyrus F. Woods in title did not lay claim to the locus in question. 

That the Town of Enfield, its selectmen and the citizens 
generally have laid claim to the land as the undisputed land of 
the Town of Enfield ever since a time prior to the year 1814. 

It was used for gatherings on public occasions and for a 
recreation ground for the younger people playing games and 
this use was not questioned by any predecessor in title to C. 
F. Woods. 

After he acquired title in 1884 he made claim that his title 
extended to the main highway and included the tract in dispute. 
He did not have any open, uninterrupted, adverse possession. 

He did not exclude the Town of Enfield, or the general 
public for any substantial period of time. 

"The contention of the defendant that Cyrus F. Woods 
held title by adverse possession is not sustained", says the 
Master. "I, find that he did not." 

The description of the Estate deeded by J. Edward Woods 
and Solon R. Towne to Cyrus F. Woods, November 21, 1884, 
is substantially the same as in Robert Field's deed to Marshall 
S. Jones in 1814 before referred to (made 95 years ago). 

The Master further says, "By no construction of said deed 
can its terms include the place where the monument stands. 

I find that said deed does not purport by any construction 
of its terms, when applied to known lines, to give any title to 
the defendant in the land on which the Soldiers' Monument 
stands. 

I have before found that although the deed to Caroline F. 
Woods dated January 30, 1908, and recorded in Book 620, page 



62 

433 does in terms cover the parcel of land in dispute it does not 
vest title in the disputed locus in this defendant. The grantors 
did not have the title thereto." 

The Master finds that the Town did acquire by parole gift 
a title to said "Common", including the land in dispute at a 
time before the year 1814, and thereafter for the period of 
seventy years and more the town continued in open, uninter- 
rupted possession with claim of right disputed by no one. 

I find the fee and title to the land is in the plaintiff the 
Town of Enfield and that the defendant has no right, title or 
interest therein. 

Any fact concerning the location of the cannon and pyramid 
of cannon balls is admitted to be immaterial. It is not claimed 
by the defendant that they are on her land. 

The attorney for the respondent requested 6 rulings which 
were not given but the Master found as follows among other 
rulings. 

1. I have found as a fact upon consideration of all the 
evidence that the town does and the defendant does not hold 
title to the land on which the soldiers' monument stands, 
does not permit the Master to report all the evidence. 

2. I have found as a fact based upon the evidence and all 
the evidence that the plaintiff Town of Enfield has established 
title to that tract of land marked on the plan A. B. C. D., same 
being the tract claimed by the defendant. 

3. I have found as a fact based on all the evidence that the 
Town was as early as the year 1814 in possession of said entire 
tract called "the Common" (excluding the church common as 
now known) by parole gift of one Robert Field and that this 
possession was exclusive and adverse to any claim of private 
ownership for at least seventy years thereafter. 



63 

4. I do not find that the town's acquired use or title was 
for passage merely. But I do find as before stated that the fee 
of said land is in the Town of Enfield. 

5. I do not find that the defendant and her husband, 
Cyrus F. Woods have had the occupation and control of the 
disputed premises by virtue of the deed to Cyrus F. Woods 
in 1884. This has before been fully considered. I found that 
said deed does not by its terms include the tract. 

I have found that the plaintiff did not have such occupation 
and control of the premises as to give title by prescription. 

The case will come before the Master probably sometime 
in January for a filing of the final report when either party may 
take exceptions to the higher Court either on admission of 
evidence or on questions of law. 



64 



The following is the decision made by Judge Henry A. 
King in confirming the Master's report. 

Hampshire, SS. SUPERIOR COURT, 

Equity. 

No. 926 

INHABITANTS OF ENFIELD, vs. 
CAROLINE D. WOODS, personally, and as Executrix of 

Cyrus F. Woods, deceased. 

MEMORANDUM OF DECISION. 

This case came on to be heard upon the Report of John C. 
Hammond, Esq., heretofore appointed Special Master to hear 
the parties and their evidence, and to report his findings thereon 
to the Court. And upon consideration thereof and after hearing 
Counsel for the respective parties, the Court finds the facts 
to be as set forth and found by the Master in his report, excepting 
only the Master's finding that plaintiff acquired title to the land 
and premises in dispute by parole gift from Robert Field. 

And said Master's report is confirmed in all things else. 

And respondent's objections and exceptions to said report 
in that regard only are sustained : — and in all other respects and 
particulars they are over-ruled. 

And respondent's objection and exception to the testimony 
of witness Isaac M. Bestor to the effect that the witness heard 



65 

his grandmother and other old people now deceased "say that 
Robert Field gave the Common and the burying ground to the 
town of Greenwich" (South Parish now Enfield) and the like 
objection and exception to similar testimony from witness 
Benjamin E. Harwood are overruled. 

It may well be that this evidence of reputation or tradition 
to establish the particular fact of title by gift was inadmissible 
under the authorities. But evidence of reputation, tradition and 
declarations of aged persons since deceased as to matters of 
public and general interest, as for example to show the existence 
of a common and its cemeteries is admissible as a well settled 
exception to the rule excluding hearsay. 

The other facts found by the Master and set forth in detail 
in his report well support his fundamental finding and conclusion 
that the defendant had at the time of the filing of plaintiff's 
bill of complaint and now has no right, title or interest in the 
particular parcel of land whereon plaintiff has erected and seeks 
to maintain a soldiers' monument free from any molestation 
thereof or interference therewith upon the part of the defendant. 

And the Master's findings of fact, (exclusive of the finding of 
a parole gift of the premises) warrant if they do not irresistibly 
compel a finding that the town of Enfield had at the time it 
erected the Soldiers' Monument upon the so-called "Common" 
title in fee to the parcel of land whereon said monument was 
erected and now stands, as well as like title to the parcel 
particularly described in the Master's report and delineated upon 
the map or plotting accompanying said report and designated 
as A. B. C. D. 

And the Court so finds the fact to be. 

But whether title thereto was acquired by plaintiff by gift 
or by unrecorded deed, or by open, exclusive, adverse and 
uninterrupted possession for more than twenty years need not 
be determined. The facts found by the Master establish 



66 

practical acquiesence in plaintiff's ownership of the premises 
in question for nearly seventy years before 1884 by defendant's 
predecessors in title. 

The Master's conclusion is well sustained irrespective of 
technical error if any in the admission of traditionary evidence 
of parole gift. The plaintiff is entitled to a decree adjudging it 
to be the owner of the parcel of land in front of defendant's 
premises known as the Common and substantially as described 
in the Master's report, and particularly to the parcel upon which 
it has erected a soldiers' monument as set forth in the bill of 
complaint; and defendant should be permanently enjoined from 
inquiring, molesting or in any way interfering with said monu- 
ment as prayed for in the bill of complaint. 

Let a decree be entered accordingly with costs to plaintiff. 
HENRY A. KING, Justice of Superior Court.

Public Library Report 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association are glad 
to report that the library has been well patronized the past year 
and has proved a means of interest and enjoyment as well as 
education to so large a portion of our community. 

The reading table is supplied with the best current litera- 
ture. The following magazines may be found there. Harper's 
Monthly, Harper's Bazar, Century, Scribner's, Atlantic Monthly, 
Review of Reviews, Good Housekeeping, McClures, St. Nicholas, 
Youths Companion, American Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Tech- 
nical World, Ladies Home Journal, Motor Age, Country Life, 
World's Work, Christian Science Journal, Popular Mechanics, 
Motor, Scientific American. 

After remaining on the table one month these may be taken 
to the homes for a week. Many have taken advantage of this 
privilege and have appreciated the opportunity this gives them 
for varied and instructive reading. 



35 

We have purchased during the year, within the limit o 
our means, such books as seemed to us best adapted to the in- 
terests of our readers. 

We acknowledge with grateful appreciation the gift of 
twenty-five volumes made to the association the past year. 
Among these we would especially note two valuable and inter- 
esting books, one "Panama" illustrated, the other "King 
Albert's book.'' 

Our thanks are due to Mrs. Arthur J. N. Ward for the gift 
of a valuable globe. 

We ask that the town continue to show its interest in the 
library by making the usual annual appropriation for its sup- 
port and granting the income of the dog fund. "Recorded 
thought is our heritage from the past, the most lasting legacy we 
can leave to the future. Books are the most enduring monu- 
ment of man's achievement." — Frederick M. Crunden. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 



Your School Committee wish to report a very satisfactory 
condition of the schools in the town for the past year, a well 
marked spirit of harmony existing in all directions. 

At the opening of the school year there was but one change 
in the teaching force, Miss Williams taking the place of Mrs. 
Parsons in the Potter district and her work is proving highly 
satisfactory. 

With the closing of the school at Smith's we were fortunate 
in retaining Miss Kennedy for the primary department in the 
center school. 

The expenditures of the school board have been kept down 
as far as seemed possible without curtailing the efficiency and 
any seeming difference between last year and the present is due 
to the change in the beginning of the fiscal year making last 
year's accounts cover a short year instead of a full year. It is 
hoped that parents who apply for high school transportation 
will see that the tickets are used in full by the child and not for- 
feited after a short time or left not taken as needless expense 
is incurred for which they might be called upon to pay. Parents are 



41 

requested to remember that all absences must be accounted for 
to the teachers by note of explanation from parent to teacher 
on return of the child to school and that only a limited number of 
absences are permitted by law other than for illness on the part 
of the child. 

An understanding of "fire drill" has been given and occa- 
sional practice advised. 

We are thankful in recording the gift of the Hanks play- 
ground to the Potter school and hope that before another year 
closes a similar addition may be made to the Kimball school 
so that the children may have a proper place for recreation and 
sport without encroaching on the highway or trespassing on 
private property. 

A continuance of mutual co-operation on the part of parents, 
teachers and scholars with the committee is urged in our efforts 
to maintain a superior grade of schools in Enfield. 

For the Committee, 

DR. W. B. SEGUR, Chairman.

School Superintendent's Report 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD:— 

I herewith submit for your consideration my eighth annual 
report, which is the twelfth annual report of the superintendent 
of schools. 



ATTENDANCE. 

The percent of attendance for the school year ending June 
30, 1915, was 95, which is two percent larger than the year be- 
fore. The number of cases of tardiness was one hundred sixty- 
eight, fifty-seven less than last year. One pupil was responsible 
for twenty-eight tardy marks. Although a number of families 
have been obliged to move away from town, owing to business 
depression, yet the average attendance is larger than last year. 



TEACHERS. 

Enfield is fortunate in being financially able to employ 
excellent teachers. This is owing to the large amount received 



43 

annually from the state. But we should bear in mind that if 
we continue to receive what we are now receiving, we must 
raise five dollars on each thousand dollars of the town's valua- 
tion, and must use for the support of schools the money received 
from the state. 

In the spring Mr. Leland Dudley was engaged to teach 
the grammar school, Mr. Norton having resigned. At the close 
of the spring term Mrs. Parsons, teacher in the Potter school, 
was granted a year's leave of absence, and Miss Abbie Williams 
was engaged to teach the school for one year. 



HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS. 

The pupils in the Athol high school had some trouble at 
the opening of the school in September in arranging for the re- 
quired number of studies. Although the pupils may not be able, 
in all cases, to select the studies they prefer, they are able to 
take the required number. 

The two pupils in the Belchertown high school are doing 
satisfactory work. There is one pupil in the Smith Agricultural 
school in Northampton. The tuition in this school is $100 a 
year. The town will be reimbursed in full by the state. 



SCHOOLS. 

Miss Ballou, teacher of drawing and practical arts, re- 
signed. During this year, Mr. Dudley has taught mechanical 
drawing and its application to the boys in the grammar school, 
and Miss Harwood has taught drawing and sewing to the girls. 
Good work has been accomplished along these lines. 



44 

Because of the small number of pupils in the Smith school, 
it was arranged to transport the pupils to the primary school 
in the Center formerly taught by Miss Frost; and Miss Ra- 
chael Kennedy, teacher at Smith, was placed in charge of the 
Center primary. 

Miss Babb has continued to do excellent work in music. 
We are arranging for an exhibition of the work of the schools 
including music, early in the spring. 

I recommend that a special teacher of drawing and practi- 
cal arts be employed for the year beginning in September. 

In closing, I call your attention to the report of the teacher 
of music. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



The work in public school music has been continued with 
these three main objects in view: first, to improve the pupil's 
ability to read at sight; second, to give him a working know- 
ledge of the rudiments of music; third, to teach him to inter- 
pret songs intelligently. 

Sight-reading and a study of music fundamentals aid the 
pupil to acquire a sense of form. 'There can be no freedom 
in art until the form is mastered. " As fast as the reading abili- 
ty improves, the standard of art advances. Sight-reading is 
the foundation of all our work in music, and is carried out by 
means of the individual slip singing exercises from the books 
and from the board, and in songs. The use of syllables is a very 
valuable drill in correlation with sight-reading. 

Through interpretation we may learn to distinguish be- 
tween mediocre and good music, while a sense of beauty of 
form and tone is developed. By means of interpretation, and a 
use of good material, an effort is being made to develop a love 
for the best in music. 

Written work includes the theoretical examinations, copy- 
ing exercises, slips and songs, writing the major scales, and 
supplementary work as outlined in the music writing book. 
The mark for the pupil's report card is obtained from the result 
of the examinations, slip singing and song work, often times 
those who are deficient in pitch or boys in the adolescent period 
do the best in theoretical work. The teachers mark the scholars 
for they are a witness to their daily work and the supervisor 
comes only once a week. 



46 

The tone quality is much better, at first it was, a harsh, 
nasal and rasping tone with a tendency to flat, now it seems sub- 
dued and more pleasing to the ear. Quality is more essential 
than quantity a song rendered in a monotonous tone is not as 
desirable as the one with expression. 

In many ways the supervisor, by her personal contact with 
the children, can aid and influence them and supplement the 
teacher's effort. Her chief work, however, is the planning of 
the most logical course for pupils or teachers to follow, the 
giving of needed suggestions and criticisms — in general the 
bringing of help to meet the many and varied needs of different 
schools. 

The booklet entitled, "The One Hundred and One Best 
Songs," published by the Cable Co., Chicago, has been intro- 
duced into the Grammar school, the Potter and Kimball schools. 
This collection contains hymns, college, patriotic and folk songs, 
familiar old tunes and secular ones. Songs are selected from 
different sources to illustrate a particular principle, or in regard 
to some particular event or time of the year. 

Mrs. Walter Bliss gave an organ to the Potter school this 
fall. The teacher, scholars and supervisor wish to express their 
sincere thanks for her kindness and thoughtfulness. 

Miss Florence Johnson, teacher of the Kimball school, 
allows the school the use of her organ. The pupils and the sup- 
ervisor are very grateful and appreciate this privilege. 

The hearty cooperation of the teachers, the superintendent 
and the committee has made my work very pleasant, and is 
in a large measure responsible for the progress made during the 
past year, for which I am very grateful. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FLORENCE M. BABB, 

Supervisor of Music.

Public Library Report 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 



The Directors are glad to report an increasing patronage 
of the library each year, which tells them there is a growing 
desire for good reading by the people of the town. 

The sudden death of Miss Ada L. Harwood came as a 
shock to her many friends. She had been librarian of the En- 
field Public Library for more than twenty years. Efficient 
and accurate in her work, with a good knowledge of the books 
under her care, she was faithful to her trust. Always obliging 
and pleasant she was well adapted to the position which she 
filled. Mrs. C. Elmer Harwood, who for a number of years 
has been assistant, was elected librarian. 

As in former years the best of the current magazines have 
been placed on the reading table, an average of fifteen each week 
being taken to the homes from those which had previously 
been on the table one month. 

An instructive book "The Art of Looking at Pictures," 
has been presented to the Library by the author, Carl P. Thurs- 



39 

ton, son of the late Rev. Philander Thurston of this town. 
"Messages of Our Presidents" in nine volumes, bound in half 
Morocco have been given us by Mrs. William Pope of Provi- 
dence, R. I. Thirty books on varied subjects have been sent 
by the State Library Commission. For all these additions 
to our library we are very grateful. 

We heartily appreciate the gift to the Enfield Library Asso- 
ciation by Mrs. Susan J. Crane of a fine portrait of her brother, 
Dr. Francis H. Underwood, the noted author. He was assistant 
editor of the Atlantic Monthly in it's early years, and closely 
associated with Holmes, Longfellow, Lowell, Field and other 
literary men of that time. Later he was appointed consul to 
Leith, Scotland, which office he held at the time of his death. 

Our hearty thanks are due to "The Enfield Boys who are 
in Springfield" who so kindly presented to the Enfield Library 
Association the silver cup won by them at the time of the cen- 
tennial celebration. 

The Library room has been made attractive by re-painting 
and placing of additional book cases. The usual number of 
carefully selected new books have been purchased during the 
year. There are now six thousand volumes aside from public 
documents. We realize every year the need of a library building. 

Book love, my friends, is your pass to the greatest, the 
purest and the most perfect pleasure that God has prepared 
for his creatures. — Anthony Trollope. 

We hope for your continued interest and the usual appro- 
priation. 

Respectfully submitted . , 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 



Your Committee wishes to report a very satisfactory 
condition existing throughout all the school departments. 
We consider ourselves fortunate in our corps of teachers. The 
only new teacher, Miss Cutting, in the Intermediate grade, 
has proved her worth and aided by her experience and ability 
the work in her room has progressed admirably. 

After a year of absence we welcomed back Mrs. Parsons 
to the Potter school. 

The health of the children has been uniformly good and 
no epidemic of disease has been present. On account of one 
case of poliomyelitis in town we were deprived of the services 
of Miss Kennedy for a few weeks, but the work was uninter- 
rupted by Mrs. West ably substituting for the remainder of 
the term. 

A new independent heating plant is being installed for 
the exclusive use of the school rooms in the town hall which 
we are confident will prove advantageous. Some minor changes 
and alterations to meet state requirements have also been added. 
The sincere co-operation of parents with the teachers and com- 
mittee is urged to bring the schools up to the highest efficiency 
in preparing the children of today to become able citizens in 
the future. 

WILLARD B. SEGUR, 

Chairman School Committee.

School Superintendent's Report 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD:— 

I herewith submit for your consideration my ninth annual 
report, which is the thirteenth of this series. 

ATTENDANCE 

The per cent, of attendance for the school year ending 
June 30, 1916, was 95, the same as last year. In some cases 
the law governing the attendance and employment of minors 
is not complied with. The number of cases of tardiness was 
one hundred twenty-one, thirty-seven less than last year. I 
trust that the parents will read carefully the law relating to 
school attendance which follows: 

An Act relative to School Attendance and to the Employment of 

Minors 

SECTION 1. Section one of chapter forty-four of the 
Revised Laws, as; amended by chapter three hundred and twenty 
of the acts of the year nineteen hundred and five, by chapter 
three hundred and eighty-three of the acts of the year nineteen 
hundred and six, and by section one of chapter seven hundred 
and seventy-nine of the acts of the year nineteen hundred and 



46 

thirteen, is hereby further amended by striking out, in the thir- 
tieth line, the word "five," and inserting in place thereof the 
word: — seven, — and by striking out the word "ten," in the 
same line, and insertiing in place thereof the word: — fourteen, — 
so as to read as follows: — Section 1. Every child between 
seven and fourteen years of age, every child under sixteen years 
of age who does not possess such ability to read, write and spell 
in the English langauge as is required for the completion of the 
fourth grade of the public schools of the city or town in which 
he resides, and every child under sixteen years of age who 
has not received an employment certificate as provided in this 
act and is not engaged in some regular employment or 
business for at least six hours per day or has not the written 
permission of the superintendent of schools of the city or town 
in which he resides to engage in profitable employment at home, 
shall attend a public day school in said city or town or some 
other day school approved by the school committee, during 
the entire time the public schools are in session, subject to such 
exceptions as are provided for in sections four, five and six of 
this chapter, and in section three of i chapter forty-two of the 
Revised Laws, as amended by chapter four hundred and thirty- 
three of the acts of the year nineteen hundred and two, and by 
chapter five hundred and thirty-seven of the acts of the year 
nineteen hundred and eleven; but such attendance shall not 
be required of a child whose physical or mental condition is 
such as to render attendance inexpedient or impracticable, or 
who is being otherwise instructed in a manner approved in ad- 
vance by the superintendent of schools or the school committee. 
The superintendent of schools, or teachers in so far as authorized 
by said superintendent or by the school committee, may excuse 
cases of necessary absence for other causes not exceeding seven 
day sessions or fourteen half-day sessions in any period of six 
months. For the purpose of this section, school committees 



47 

shall approve a private school only when the instruction in 
all the studies required by law is in the English language, and 
when they are satisfied that such instruction equals in thorough- 
ness and efficiency, and in the progress made therein, the in- 
struction in the public schools in the same city or town; but 
they shall not refuse to approve a private school on account of 
the religious teaching therein. 

SECTION 2. Said chapter forty-four of the Revised 
Laws, as amended by section two of said chapter seven hundred 
and seventy-nine of the acts of the year nineteen hundred and 
thirteen, is hereby further amended bj r striking out the word 
"five," in the fourth line, and inserting in place thereof the 
word: — seven, — and by striking out the word "ten," in the 
same line, and inserting in place thereof the word: — fourteen, — 
so as to read as follows : — Section 2. Every person having under 
his control a child as described in section one shall cause him 
to attend school as therein required, and, if he fails for seven 
day sessions or fourteen half-day sessions within any period of 
six months while such control obtains, to cause such child so 
to attend school, he shall, upon complaint by an attendance offi- 
cer and conviction thereof, be punished by a fine of not more 
than twenty dollars, and no physical or mental condition which 
is capable of correction, or which renders the child a fit subject 
for special instruction at public charge in institutions other 
than public day schools, shall avail as defence under the prov- 
isions of this or the preceding section, unless it shall be made to 
appear that the defendant has employed all reasonable meas- 
ures for the correction of the condition and the suitable in- 
struction of the child. 

Whoever induces or attempts to induce a child to absent 
himself unlawfully from school, or employs or harbors a child 
while school is in session, shall be punished by a fine of not less 
than ten nor more than fifty dollars. (Approved March 18, 1915.) 



48 



TEACHERS 

All our schools are in charge of teachers who by training 
or experience are well qualified. Mrs. Parsons, who was given 
a year's leave of absence, returned at the beginning of the school 
year in September to her work in the Potter school. Miss 
Abbie Cutting has taught the sixth and seventh grades in 
the center grammar school. Her excellent work has been ap- 
preciated by the committee and parents. 

The music has been in charge of Miss Florence Babb. 
The music in our schools has reached a high standard. The 
pupils can read easily and with expression. The music selected 
is from the best. Those who have heard our pupils sing in 
public appreciate the work of those who have been instrumental 
in accomplishing these results. 

SCHOOLS 

An exhibition of school work was given in the town hall in 
June. This year it will be given in the several school rooms. 
The work shown was not especially prepared but was taken 
from the daily work of the pupils during the year. I hope 
the parents and citizens will attend these exhibitions where 
they can learn what our schools are accomplishing. 

The work in practical arts has been carried on in charge 
of the regular teachers. It is evident that many of our pupils 
should be trained along the industrial line. Industrial work 
is considered a part of regular school work and is carried on 
in most of the cities and towns in the state. The State Board 
of Education is preparing a course of study for the schools 



49 

of the state. Industrial training is included in the course. 
I sincerely hope that the committee will feel that it is for the 
best interest for our schools to employ a special teacher for the 
industrial work or practical arts. This can be done without 
a special appropriation from the town. 

Enfield has in the past, endeavored to keep abreast of the 
times. Her pupils have ranked high in scholarship. If she 
continues to maintain this position she must progress. 

I take this opportunity to thank the committee for their 
confidence and co-operation, the teachers for their loyalty, and 
the citizens for their courtesy. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



"All our life is music, 

If we but touch the chords aright and in tune." 

Public school music consists of Sight Singing, Songs and 
Written Work. Other elements, however, must be considered; 
among them interpretation, which calls for correct pronuncia- 
tion, clear enunciation and an intelligent rendering of the senti- 
ment of a song; and proper tone production, which may be 
secured by voice drills and correct breathing. 

In all schools, individual slip singing is an important fea- 
ture. It trains the eye and the memory, calls for accurate 
judgment and quick thinking, increases the pupil's self-control, 
requires intense concentration, and improves the ability to read 
at sight. 

For Written Work, slip exercises, exercises from the music 
book or from the board, and supplementary songs are copied. 
In the upper grades they have copied hymns and songs in 
soprano, alto, tenor and bass. 

The songs selected are melodious and pleasing, with proper 
range and illustrative of some theoretical point. In many 
cases, works of some famous composer are taken in a simpli- 
fied form. Rote singing is a good example of imitation and 
helps to develop a musical taste. For the artistic rendition of 
a song, attention must be given to proper enunciation, for if 



51 

the words are not heard distinctly, the song loses its beauty. 
It is especially interesting to have a variety of songs as follows: 

September — Harvest songs. 
October — Fall songs. 
November — Thanksgiving music. 
December — Christmas songs and carols. 
January — Snow, skating and Jack Frost songs. 
February — Valentine and George Washington songs. 
March — Folk songs and lullabies. 
April — Pussy Willow and spring songs. 
May — Flower songs and Memorial music. 
June — Standard familiar tunes and review those 
learned during the year. 

Last May an exhibition was given in the Town Hall. All 
branches of work were exhibited including the written music 
work. The entertainment was all musical numbers, each room 
rendered two selections, one song being lively and cheerful and 
the other one more peaceful and quiet. The primary school 
sang a group of songs from the "Sun Bonnet Babies," with 
motions, each song suggestive of a certain day of the week. 

The helpfu! spirit and co-operation of the superintendent, 
committee and teachers have made the work very pleasant 
for me and added largely to its profit for the children. To 
them and all others who have helped, I wish to express my 
gratitude and appreciation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FLORENCE M. BABB, 

Supervisor of Music.
